Saint Martin de Porres
I chose Saint Martin de Porres as a patron saint because I admired so much his charity. I also ask his prayers so that I might bear the hardships in my life as faithfully as he did as a sign of faith and growth. He was abandoned by his father, but when he father returned into his life, he was educated. Very smart, he used the gifts God gave him to help the poor.
